HoNoToGroABeMo Day Thirty-One: It Is Done

   Posted by: Jim   in Computer games

[The posts for this month are reposts from the site www.honotogroabemo.org, on which a host of hirsute individuals including yours truly would grow beards to raise money for breast cancer research. The site is defunct, but I thought I’d resurrect the game-related posts. This was originally posted on 2011-12-01.]

(We three, we happy three, we band of bearded brothers)

It is over. The beards have been grown, the money has been collected, another HoNoToGroABeMo is over. And now, time for some congratulations and some thank yous and some final business.

(Two steps to a Long Island iced tea…)

I also had to get back to work today and I wasn’t quite ready. Time for a drink, I think. Or perhaps a mixture?

(Not a lot of orthographic camera lenses out there)

So here’s Game Two for today. The camera angle here is the only clue. But my beard looks nice, don’t you think? Makes you want to donate, perhaps?

(Even Lady Gaga can’t beat this)

I ain’t revealin’ nothin’.

(And on the seventh day there was gin)

So look at this planet I have created. Perhaps I will populate it with little people and make them dance to my will! Though I should probably create some land first, or give them some boats, lest they drown.

(I’m missing a staff — and I don’t mean a Gal Friday.)

Twenty days down, ten to go. My daughter is already asking me to shave. But to fight cancer I will stay strong…

The game pictured here isn’t strictly vintage, being only 8 years old [16 years old now — so it qualifies – Ed.]. It also doesn’t feature a bearded protagonist; much the opposite, really. However, it does have the auspicious distinction of shared a name with a work by Nietzsche. So perhaps this is a picture of me taking a picture of the abyss.

(He’d devour you, but he just ate)

There are a number of games that could match this picture, but I think it’s fairly obvious which one I’m thinking of.

(Some days you get the worm, some days the worm gets you)

So I’m sick, which is not all that great for beard growing or game inspiration. However, I’m watching Twin Peaks (directed by David Lynch, with Kyle MacLachlan and Everett McGill, and Miguel Ferrer — as opposed to Jose Ferrer). And drinking some spiced cider, so I’m sure I’ll be able to navigate my way out of this desert of illness.

(I seem to be ready for my trip to Chicago)

I’m not sure of the efficacy of commodity grains in producing beard hair, but with the application of sausage and bacon, you certainly can produce a manly breakfast. But I suppose the application of sausage and bacon makes just about any meal more manly. A shame they don’t trade pork belly futures any more.

(… You see, he thinks I’m crazy. And I’m the President. So I’ve got the box. Damn straight.)

I think the beard growth is going to my head — I’ve been having some funny thoughts about world domination. Unfortunately, my donations are still running a little low. Thanks to those who donated already, but if I don’t get some more soon, I may blow up a little.
